The Clear Way To Straighter Teeth

Are you looking for a discreet way to straighten your crooked teeth? Invisalign clear braces is a clear and effective way to realign your teeth and bite. Invisalign is a great way for teens and adults to straighten their teeth. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners, so you can continue to feel confident in your social and professional interactions. Dr. James Furgurson offers Invisalign for qualifying patients at our Chapel Hill, NC dentist office.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign works by using a series of custom fit aligners. Dr. Furgurson will custom design your aligners using impressions of your teeth. The impressions will be sent to an Invisalign lab where they will create the whole series of aligners for your individualized treatment plan. Each set of aligners is designed to gradually shift your teeth. The aligners will each be worn for approximately two weeks, but treatment time will be determined based on your cosmetic goals. Dr. Furgurson will help you determine the appropriate length of wear for optimal results. Treatment generally takes between 9-12 months depending on your goals and oral health.

Who Invisalign Works For

Invisalign is an ideal orthodontic alternative for adults experiencing an orthodontic relapse. Over the years your teeth may have shifted undoing years of wearing metal braces as a child. Invisalign can realign your teeth and restore your straight, functional and beautiful smile. Invisalign can also close tooth gaps, fix minor to moderate crossbite issues and reposition mildly crooked teeth.

Invisalign can straighten your smile without the stigma of metal braces. For many adults, the thought of metal braces may be embarrassing. Invisalign clear aligners are discreet and removable for your convenience and ease of use. Though you should wear your aligners throughout most of the day, you can remove them for special occasions. Because the Invisalign retainers are removable you can continue eating and drinking the foods you love without limitations. Their removable nature also allows you to brush and floss normally, helping to maintain your oral hygiene.
